Floating island. Winged people. Forbidden romance.
Ledger is supposed to fear and despise the Sky People of Ellery.
When an Ellerian girl named Alouette with beautiful, white wings sneaks into his village, everything changes. With his village at war with the winged people who live on the floating island that circles their world, he does the unthinkable: he befriends her.
In Ledger's seventeenth harvest, Ellery returns empty. The Sky People are gone, Alouette is missing, and Ledger must make a difficult choice—continue life as usual in the blacksmith workshop or board the island against the elders' wishes and find her.
